Having smooth and beautiful skin isn’t just a matter of aesthetics. In fact, the state of our skin is a reflection of our overall wellbeing. In order to maintain their skin’s good looks and health, many people use beauty products with natural ingredients matching their skin type. 

However, it’s the people who know how to enhance their body’s production of those same ingredients who are at a real advantage. With a holistic approach, they manage to get the best of their skin by treating their body and mind with utmost respect and care, and that’s something that can help them in the long run. 

After all, everything in our body is connected and when we make even the tiniest healthy change, such as cutting down on alcohol, smoking or processed sugars, or we start working out more, it shows somewhere on our bodies, whether on our skin, weight, mood or anywhere else. 

But what can you do to heal your skin from the inside? Here is some useful information...

The Collagen Problem

Collagen is a protein the body creates and it can be found in our muscles, bones, but also skin. It’s the most abundant protein our body contains and its molecules have a supportive function, meaning that they strengthen our bones, connective tissue, and give our skin its flexibility. 

In recent years it’s become a trend to take collagen supplements in order to make our skin, hair, and nails stronger and healthier. Even though these supplements can increase the level of collagen in the body and slow down the aging of our skin, we should always have in mind that collagen is something that’s naturally synthesized by our body. 

As we age, we spend increasingly more of it and our body produces less of it. So, instead of taking supplements of artificially created collagen, we should focus more on improving the natural production of it. 

This is something that could benefit us much more than taking supplements since it can have a whole range of positive effects on our health. 

One of the best ways to do this is to maintain a healthy diet, loaded with nutrients such as proline, anthocyanidins, copper and vitamins C and A while lowering sugar intake and quitting smoking.


Add Curcumin to your Diet

Turmeric is one of the most common spices in various Indian dishes, but other than making Indian food interestingly tasty, it has many benefits on our body and especially our skin. 
It could be due to its ingredients, such as manganese, iron, magnesium, potassium, fiber, and vitamins B6 and C. 

Also, its active compound curcumin, which gives turmeric its distinctively yellow color is a powerful antioxidant. You can add it to your meals as a spice, or you can take premium curcumin tablets which improve the absorption of curcumin by the body. 

Because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it can calm your skin, stimulate circulation, as well as reduce redness, puffiness and dark circles under your eyes. 

Plus, since it’s an antiseptic, it’s great for fighting acne. It may also be helpful with sun protection and preventing the skin from losing its elasticity.

Even though technically tomato is a fruit, in the culinary sense it’s definitely a vegetable and one that can improve the taste of many savory meals. 

But, how can eating tomatoes help our skin? Well, it’s rich in vitamins and minerals which are necessary for our body to function normally. 

The protein from tomatoes can help repair any of our damaged cells, while tomato seeds destroy the free radicals that cause inflammation, which consequently decreases the redness of the skin. 

Eating tomatoes is one way to go about it, but you can also use them to make facial masks which may shrink the size of your open pores, prevent the obvious signs of aging and even behave as a natural sunscreen

Combined with sugar they can remove the dead skin cells from your face, while mixed with honey they can make your skin look amazingly smooth and glowing. 

Plus, tomatoes can help in preventing or treat sunburns. 

So, some lettuce, a few slices of fresh cucumber and some sun-bathed red tomatoes with a bit of low-fat cheese can make for a great meal and allow your skin to look its best.

Conclusion

We treat our skin with all sorts of beauty products to enhance its health, but sometimes we overdo it, causing the skin to lose its natural resilience. So, although lotions and creams can be helpful, it’s probably best to combine them with a healthy and nutritional diet which can help our skin from the inside and keep it healthy and beautiful.

So, this was it for today. I hope you have found this post helpful. Have a Good Day! πŸ˜‡
